For purposes of U.S. immigration, students transferring to the University of Idaho from abroad who have not held any student status in the U.S. are treated the same as new students.
Students already in the U.S. in F-1 status who are transferring to the University of Idaho from another U.S. school must provide documentation of continued eligibility
for F-1 status, including documentation of adequate funding. Transfer students should apply for admission
by completing the International Student Application. Transfer students are required to attend the mandatory check-in before beginning their degree program.
Transfer students must work with their current school's designated school official to have their Student and Exchange Visitor Information Services (SEVIS) record released to the University of Idaho after gaining admission. A new transfer-in I-20 should be issued within the 15 days after school begins for the first semester attended at the University of Idaho.
F-1 students transferring out of the University of Idaho must complete the SEVIS Transfer Release Form
and take it to the Office of International Student, Scholar and Faculty Services.
